ZAGREB (Croatia), December 13 (SeeNews) - Low cost air carrier easyJet said on Tuesday it will add seven new routes to Croatia in 2017, taking the total count to 40, as part of its expansion on the Croatia market.
"From today easyJet offers 40 routes from across its Croatian airports to connect to six European countries," the company said in a statement.
The air carrier will add Croatia's coastal town Zadar to its network, making it the fourth airport served by easyJet in the country after Split, Dubrovnik and the recently introduced Pula.
easyJet will launch flights from Zadar to Milan on June 27.
"I am sure the new flights to Zadar, where we expect to carry over 8,000 passengers in the first summer of operations, will soon prove popular with Italian holidaymakers that can now choose to travel at fantastic fares to one of the oldest Croatian cities as well as gateway to beautiful beaches, islands and the unique UNESCO World Heritage site of Plitvice Lakes National Park", Dimitris Schoinas, senior route manager for easyJet, was quoted as saying.
easyJet's new investment in Croatia sees a considerable increase in capacity for next year, by over 23% versus last year, meaning nearly 1 million seats are available for passengers flying to this region, the statement added.
Croatian passengers will have bigger choice to fly at affordable fares from Dubrovnik to Belfast, Basel, Manchester and Naples, from Pula to Bristol and Berlin Schoenefeld and from Zadar to Milan Malpensa.
In June, easyJet said it is celebrating carrying 1 million passengers to and from Croatia's coastal town of Dubrovnik and will continue to expand its services across the Adriatic country.
